Rumors are sweeping the huge Marine base at Camp Pendleton, Calif. that a politically-connected JAG officer has gotten a local female pregnant. Complicating matters is the officer is already married and the top brass (at least as of press time here), has not filed charges, much less started an investigation.

Sources say Capt. Peter P. Hardin is the military lawyer who allegedly impregnated a young woman, described by CI's only as a "well-liked" ballerina who lives near the Marine base.

Hardin's father is Judge Adlai Stevenson Hardin. Yes, related to the family of the late Democratic candidate for President in 1952 and again in 1956. The JAG's dad is chairman of the Committee on Professional and Judicial Ethics of the New York City Bar Assn.

TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY

We wish to give Capt. Hardin equal space to respond on our pages, if he wishes, to the rumors - and we emphasize, nothing has been proven yet. He is innocent until proven guilty.

The question on many Marine's minds at Pendleton is if there will be a "cover-up."

Most disturbing is the perception - if indeed Hardin did what is being said - that because he is a JAG officer, this could become another case of "different spanks for different ranks."

MilitaryCorruption.com hopes, for the captain's sake, he has done nothing wrong. But if he has impregnated a woman not his wife, we feel "justice" and punishment should be as swift and severe for an officer as it would be for a Marine enlisted member or NCO.
